Hey, How are you?
I have 2 things to tell you.
1. Please do yourself a favor and buy Apple Care. if you buy it on Ebay, It is cheaper and it is still legit!
2. RE: Your problem with the battery. I have had this happen So many times to my new Macbook Pro! All you have to do is take the charger out, and use your computer until the battery drains and it puts it self to Sleep! After this you should see your problem fading away. Just as a side note, You should do that Once of Twice a week!
Enjoy your baby!
My interpretation of the KB article is that it's normal for the battery to stop charging to avoid a short discharge/charge cycle, so if you use the computer for a short time on battery and then attach the charger, it might not charge to 100%.
However, I don't think it's normal for the battery to not charge up to 100% if you attach the charger after using the computer for longer and draining the battery beyond 93%.
Today, my battery was at about 75-80% when I attached the charger, and I've been stuck at 99% (Calculating...) for about 6 hours now, and the LED light on my MagSafe plug is still orange. I don't think that's normal.
